SUPERPOWER ELECTRIC’s Consumer Guide to Manual Transfer Switches

Safely and easily deliver power from your portable generator to your home’s electrical panel during a power outage with Generac’s Manual Transfer Switch. Once installed, our manual transfer switch eliminates the need to run multiple extension cords through open windows and doors and allows you to safely power hard-wired items like your furnace or well-pump.

What is a Manual Transfer Switch?
Manual transfer switches are devices that transfer electrical loads to an alternate or standby power source. They are required by the National Electric Code, as they provide safety protection from “backfeeding.” Backfeeding occurs when a generator is connected directly to your home’s wiring. It can be a significant safety hazard, as it electrifies circuits that could otherwise be presumed dead. BF Electric protects you, your family, and your home by expertly installing all of our generators along with top grade manual transfer switches.

There are three main options for manual transfer switches for residential use:
Whole house manual transfer switches are installed between the utility meter and the primary load center.
A subpanel transfer system uses a small load center which consists of only the circuits that will be powered by the generator. The subpanel is powered alternately by a built-in or separate switch from either the standby generator or the main panel.

Loadside transfer switch systems use multiple manual transfer switches connected after the branch circuit breaker and in a single enclosure. There is a switch for each circuit to be powered by the standby source.
Our manual transfer switches are installed with your convenience in mind. They can be mounted on the wall next to your electrical panel, and connected to the circuits you’ll need during a blackout. When you lose power, you crank up your generator and flip the switches for the circuits you want running.

Our manual transfer switches are sold pre-wired with up to six circuits protected. You can back up selected lights appliances and hard-wired items during a power outage. If your installation is unique however, BF Electric can provide you with a transfer switch that has interchangeable breakers, and modify it to suit your individual needs.
